Population Sampling a Mixed Method Study
Mr Matt Schneider
CEO of Optika Solutions


Optika Solutions is working with Water Corporation in transforming the way we think about urban water use in response to climate change and population growth challenges. H2OME incorporates the technology, data, and approach to determine how much water Perth should be using to preserve the liveability, amenity, and quality of life of the community. 

The project aims to achieve this result through a multi-modal approach, using surveys, audits, and the installation of remote digital meters. Through a stratified sampling approach, with subpopulations grouped by region and household land size, the study guarantees representativeness across the Perth population to ensure the accuracy and applicability of these results.

The talk will be around the use of a stratified sampling approach, populations and techniques that we looked at in selecting the overall approach.

H2OME has already been recognized, having won the Data Insights Of The Year category of the 2019 iAwards.
